Thanks. I will get some AS568A-021 as well as a metric equivalent 27 x 1.5, Buna N, 70A duro, and try them both. I suspect the metric one is the correct one.

690 Stator Image

Anyone have an image of the stock stator from
the 690 E (all the same P/N for 2008-2013)

Either in place or off the bike...

Looking to see if there is room for a higher
output wind on it... and hoping to avoid
having to pull mine apart to find out...

Thanks !

Goose,
Yeah, Bobzilla invited me to join his posse for 9 days off-road around the Grand Canyon....I had a really good time meeting them all and enjoying the countryside. I have since invited Bob to come up to BC for a return favour later this summer.

I will let the cat out of the bag and say that Bob had threatened to sell his problematic 690 and build a Honda 500 Frankendualsport....he has dumped his 690 and is cross-breeding a DR650 with real suspension, etc.... .

2010 690 Enduro Questions

A couple of question from the mechanically inexperienced if I may.

1) What is the exhaust and intake valve clearance on the 2010 690 Enduro engine?

2) I would like to grease the swing arm bearings, is it a challenge to access\remove the swingarm?

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

1) .07 to .13 mm

2) It can be done. I wouldn't worry about it till you rebuild the suspension. I did my 2008 with about 30,000 miles about 2 months ago. Some of the bearings have loose needles so if you aren't careful, you might lose them. So unless you are going through lots of water or have reason to think you don't have grease in there, I wouldn't worry too muchb. Other than that its pretty straight forward.

MT43 Trials Tyre on 690

I put an MT43 trials tyre (DOT approved) on the 690 as a bit of an experiment ...

At about 400km, it didn't look as though it would get me home from that ride - central knobs flaking, and a general trackside thumbs down ...

At that point I was running a little over 20psi (we had some section on tar, as well as a fair bit of hard gravel), and I think this was a mistake ...

Unlike a knobby, the tyre really needs to be run on all surfaces at about 10psi - this lets the whole breadth of the tyre stay on the ground - not just the central knobs ...

Having taken the plunge and lowered the pressure to about 10psi I noticed a huge improvement in both handling and knob wear - the pics below show it now at about 2,000km - really not bad considering the weight and HP of the 690, and the speeds it travels at ...

And I'd have to say that it gives the best feeling allround of any rear tyre I've tried - traction on rocks is sensational - can be squirmy on the hard gravel, but way more predictable than the D606 I've been running to date ....

Anyway, an interesting result given the generally poor prognosis at about 400km - this tyre should get me to about 3,000km, which is what I'd generally get out of a D606 - at that point I'll try another one, and this time run it from new at 10psi ...

Well the MT43 came off the 690 today, after about 3,000km of mixed terrain at 10-11psi ...

You can see from the pic below that it's pretty much shagged, but some life left ...

I'm (again) vey surprised by this tyre - not an obvious choice for a 690 - it gives a very nice feel on gravel, and great traction on rock etc - haven't tried it in deep mud ...

Crap

Just got the FI code for faulty IAT sensor. I still have 35km to go after my shift, in the dark. And its winter, and piss-cold. So tomorrow I get to pull the just-before-the-time-filled-up-EVO 2 tanks and the airbox. Joy.

I removed my swingarm after one season and 7,000km. Mine had some water in them and were pitted on one side. I changed out the works.

The OEM grease is more or less a thin film. If I had my time back I would have disassembled all the linkage when new and applied waterproof grease before I ever rode it. My suspension guy, a factory KTM mechanic during the day, said that's exactly what they do with every bike before it's ever on-track.

I just installed a new Super Plush 90N spring and collar on my 2013 690 Enduro R. So far it is the best mod I've done (also done exhaust, front sprocket and skid). I was only able to take it for a short rip yesterday evening, but so far, the bike feels much more planted and puts the power down more effectively. I'm glad I changed the collar when I did, after only approx. 700km the threads were starting to give, any more and I probably would have had to cut the ring off. I wanted to say that it was a pleasure doing business with James Siddall and crew at Super Plush.

Can I ask your weight? (I'm also considering new springs from Super Plush.) Also the modified collar- is it also aluminum? Just wider/fatter?

I'm having some throttle issues recently.

When I'm traveling down a straight at about 3k-4k rpm the throttle will open up itself for a split second causing a sudden surge.

Problem arise during hard acceleration and upon closing throttle, it remains open for split second again. Had a few close calls due to this. Any idea what is wrong?

And yes the throttle actually turns by itself with minimum pressure from me.
Happened on all 3 settings soft, normal and advance

Will be heading down to my KTM dealer next week to get it checked.

on a 2013 690 ER, with RR foam filter, stock exhaust on stock map (needs remap?)
installed CJ designs filler cap recently could that be the problem?

Damn....there looks like 25-30% tread left That looks good still for gravel and pavement for at least another 1000km....but we always like a fresh tire

Yes, a surprisingly good tire considering the power of the 690....love it on my 450

What is your next rear tire choice?

The Heidenau will be my rear alternative to my current choice of MotoZ desert IT Tractionator.

Gen,
I weigh 210lbs. The collar is billet aluminum, but significantly more robust. I should have taken side-by-side pics to show the difference, there really is no comparison. I don't know why KTM didn't provide something like this from the factory.
When I contacted Super Plush, I let them know my weight, riding characteristics and that sometimes, but not that often, I rode with a passenger (105lbs). They suggested I get the 90N spring and then adjust the pre-load if I were riding two-up. They also said that if I were consistently riding two-up I should look at the 100N. Hope this helps.
